MDOT prepares to close I-110 ramp overnight

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A portion of Interstate 110 will be closed Monday beginning at 7 p.m. The Mississippi Department of Transportation needs to replace some highway signs on a section of the I-110 ramp.

In order to do that, MDOT will close the southbound ramp to get on Highway 90 east.

Signs will direct drivers to exit at Division Street and use neighborhood streets to make their way to Highway 90 east, or they can take the westbound exit onto the highway and then turn around at another intersection to travel east.

The ramp is just one lane, and MDOT says it's not wide enough to safely do the work with traffic present.

The work is expected to take several hours. The ramp is expected to close at 7 p.m. and reopen by 6 a.m. Tuesday.

MDOT selected Monday night to do the work, because there's less traffic on Monday than other nights later in the week.
